ML530 G1 with a RIB II... no video

Inserted a new card into a server running W2K (moot), and the server will not display any video output. We have the right 4-pin connector (does it with or without) and we are in the right PCI slot (slot 1).

I have two servers and two cards with the same result.

Any ideas? Since the server are out of warranty I get no love from HP!

Are you plugging the monitor into the video port on the RILO II board? It won't work if you plug the monitor into the video port on the server. I've made that mistake a few times.

And yes... I am plugging the video into the card. I have installed RIBs and RIB IIs on many servers except for the ML530 G1.

hi Gerald,
di you place the RIBs in a slot that belongs to PCI bus 1 ?
It is important to use pci bus 1 for any video card.

Nope... checked the serial numbers and they do not fall into the range of bad cards.
